    Hey Mayrah, I’m doing the tour on my own but am flying to canada to meet up with my sister and we are going to mexico together for her birthday lol and she’s booking it (lord help me lol) when they have the packages come out in feb or march i think. I dont think it will be a tour tho.

    @ David…i think that would be alright…i think it depends on the person itself on how much your really wanna spend….. ive changed some money for my cash passport card and had some cash as well… well our dollar is stronger than US at the moment so we are really lovin it!!!

    @ Dani…have a great time with your sis….Cant wait for 2011 to hurry up…im just so in the mood for a holiday!!!

    Hi! I just booked the Grand Southern for June 9th and will be following it up with the New York Explorer July 5th. I’m from California- but I’ve never travelled across the US. I will be travelling solo, so a little nervous- but mostly excited. We will have so much fun!

    It’s only four days… but sounds like its filled with a ton of stuff. PLUS- we will be in New York for our Fourth of July which means fireworks over the water and around the Statue of Liberty. I think that will be amazing. I’m searching online for a party boat for that evening!

    Hi Mayrah! I’ve been searching online for the best way to celebrate the 4th… From what I can gather- rooftop champagne parties are very popular, that way you can see the arial fireworks displays. Cheap- but would need to find a party. Or we can get on a party boat around the Statue of Liberty and see the fireworks from there. I will let you know more details at I find them!

    Hi Everyone,
    My friend Nicole and I are both booked in for the Grand Southern June 9th! Sooo Sooo excited! We’re both from Melbourne, Australia and its our first Big Trip away!
    Due to our limited Annual Leave from work we’re spending some time in New York first, then fly to LA and spend some time there before we start Contiki. Looking forward to Independence Day in New York! A cruise around the statue of liberty at night would be amazing…. i just wonder what time we get back though???
    only 7 months to go Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    UPDATE: just spoke with a Contiki consultant on the phone, we’re not expected to get to New York on 4th July until approx 5pm…. and she said being that its a holiday we could have traffic delays etc Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> the cruises that i’ve found so far all leave around 5pm!

    Surely majority will rule and possibly be able to leave a little earlier so we get back for those things
